jpg2000 support in 0.0.13?

Wow, thanks for the new release! I like the updated interface, at least since 0.0.10, which was the latest version I had until now. I noticed JP2000 support in your release notes, but PDFs like the one I posted to my bug report last year (3061894) still don't display. Should they now work? Thanks again for this great software.

Hi!

As you can see in the attachment the file displays properly on my computer. Are you using windows? I didn't run the jp2000 test on windows so this could be the reason.

Update: On my virtual windows xp the blank.pdf from your bug report can be handled without problems. could you run briss from terminal an check if there are any error messages?

best regards,

jpg2000 problem is under os x

I'm running 10.6.7 and did get a bunch of errors running from the console. It's possible that I've got some non-standard Java stuff installed (perhaps from when I tried to get earlier versions of Briss to work with jp2000 PDFs), but I don't think so. How should I get the error messages to you?

I just started an Wikipedia page for this great application:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Briss

I hope to modify and correct the information about it.

The two wiki's are compatible. You can just edit ours and capture what you want and then paste it into the wikipedia one. They have slightly different requirements so grabbing it all is not necessary.

Does anyone know whether BRISS is compatible with OpenJDK, or do you need Sun's (Oracle's?) JRE?

OpenJDK is working well. In fact it's the only development jdk I use...

And: Thank you guys for the wiki entries!

Feature request

Hi laborg,

Thanks for this awesome tool!! As other have said already, Briss is by far the best cropping tool I've seeing.

I have a small suggestion for future enhancement of this great tool. Sometimes in the PDF file I got some specific pages that are rotated or have a box larger than the text margin (usually with Infograph or something like that). When the cropping is done either we end up with a lot of pages having a larger margin or some content is lost. It would be nice if we could select/inform a list of pages to be cropped individually. Not sure if this is possible.

I'm attaching an example of a merged PDF that illustrate the problem.

Once again, thanks for this great software.

help with briss

Today I tried Briss 13 for the first time: cropped two pdf files. Both appeared perfect in every way when viewed with adobe acrobat on the pc, but when transferred to my ereaders (bebook one and sony prs950) one showed correctly, but the other was completely blank on both readers. I even tried on the computer to resave with Adobe Acrobat 9 but didn't help. I tried recropping the original file but again it showed blank when moved to the ereaders. I've attached the offending file, and wondered if anyone has suggestions about how to solve this problem?

(I tried the original uncropped pdf file and it did not show on the ereaders either)

Hi!

I tried your file on a bookeen cybook and while opening an error message showed up. What happens if you load the original file on to your ebook reader? Does it show up as expected?

best regards,

The problem is clearly not with BRISS then.

I tried converting your file to PostScript and back, and it wound up over 100 MB in size. There's some kind of funky compression in it, I think.

If I can upload the result here I will,but I don't think I can. (Nah, I'm limited to 20 MB...)

You do know that calling PDF cropping software BRISS can be considered rather offensive to some.
